Released on April 21, 2014

Top 30 Tech and Telecom icon.The Top 30 Tech & Telecom list represents the largest green power users among technology and telecommunications partners within the Green Power Partnership. The combined green power use of these organizations amounts to nearly 7.7 billion kilowatt-hours annually, which is equivalent to avoiding the carbon dioxide emissions from the electricity use of nearly 727,000 average American homes annually.

Our commitment to support long-term sustainability began in 2010 with the decision to use 100% green power. Today, all of Datapipe's U.S. data center facilities utilize sustainable electricity, making a significant reduction to our carbon footprint.
- Robb Allen, Datapipe, Inc.

Usage figures are based on annualized Partner contract amounts (kilowatt-hours), not calendar year totals. These rankings are updated on a quarterly schedule. Find out how your organization can partner with EPA today! To view a top partner list, select from the chart below:
